Yoga enables us to develop the relationship between the body and breath to create space for the mind to be still and centred. I teach a traditional form of yoga, often referred to as viniyoga. This approach integrates the mind, body and breath, creating a meditative practice. All abilities are welcome. If necessary, postures (āsana) can be adapted to enable you to experience the energy of the posture and develop the relationship between flexibility and strength.
Different yoga spaces for practice:
Wednesday Yoga: I teach two classes on Wednesdays. Classes are organised in terms where we work with a yoga related theme and a consistent practice. Classes are not differentiated; all levels of experience are welcome. Every class ends with some quiet reflection time. The longer the class, the more time there is to work with the breath and sit quietly.
Restorative Yoga Class – Living-with-Fatigue: This is a monthly class and is suitable for anyone living with fatigue. This will mean different things to different people. You may have a dignosis that highlights chronic fatigue as part of your life or you might just recognise yourself when you go the page and read about the class and who it is for.
Yoga with Guided Meditation: A longer class to include asana (postures) and an extended guided meditation (similar to yoga nidra) followed by Ayurvedic tea to wake you up for your journey home. It is open to everyone. I aim to offer these classes at the end of the yoga terms.
Individual Yoga: Together, we work to create a home practice for you. A home practice is tailored for your own needs and can last from 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the time you have available and what you think is realistic. ‘Little and often’ is preferable to ‘a lot now and then’. Your practice will provide a consistent space in which you can build relationship with and develop your yoga. Sometimes two people book a joint lesson because they like practising together and can support each other to find a space to work in. If you are new to practice it may be that we meet every 2 – 3 weeks. If you have some experience, lessons can be more spread out, perhaps every 4, 6, or 8 weeks.
Please contact me if you want a conversation to discuss practice.
Morning Retreats at Yanley will return in 2019. This is a nourishing morning to explore yoga through practice and shared discussion. All levels of practitioner are welcome. A chance to stop and reconnect through the breath, body and mind

Member of the AYS, a community of Yoga teachers and yoga students at all levels. Members share a common interest in the approach to yoga. Yoga inspired by the teachings of TKV Desikachar and his father, T. Krishnamacharya. Teachers within this approach offer one-to-one teaching and/or therapy, group classes, workshops and retreats.
The approach to yoga taught by TKV Desikachar, the son of TK Krishnamacharya is the special application of the tools of yoga to different situations, different people. Desikachar stated that yoga is not a “one size fits all”, but a body of knowledge and tools which need to be carefully tailored to suit each one of us.
